Volkswagens Transporter models date back to its T1 model first out over 70 years ago. It was used mostly for transporting individuals rather than goods.
However, these days a VW Transporter is often employed for a wide range of commercial purposes. From a tradesman's van holding all of their tools, to someone delivering packages for Amazon, a business vehicle, or even a van converted into a camper.
As you can see there is a wide range of use cases from Transports these days, but no matter what you use yours for you'll want to make sure it remains roadworthy.
This is where our talented team of Technicians come in. Our experts use only genuine VW parts that have come with a reassuring two-year warranty that covers unlimited mileage from the date of purchase.
Relying on your Transporter to get you around day-to-day for work or for leisure means the last thing you need is to be caught out broken down at the side of the road.
Its recommended that you give your Transporter a full service at least once per year or every 12,000 miles, whichever comes sooner. A full service is a very thorough check of everything you'll need to be checked to know your van is safe to drive.
Aside from your annual full service, there is also an option of having an Interim Service every six months or 6,000 miles. This service is more of a check-up and not quite as exhaustive as a full service but good for those looking for some peace of mind.
There are many reasons you'll want to get that Transporter booked in for a service. This includes improved safety, saving your money, longevity, and a higher resale value.
Not having your car serviced on at least an annual basis goes a long way to keeping you safe on the road. Vans take more of a beating on the road than cars do with heavy loads putting stress on the vehicle along with potholes, adverse weather, and all of the other challenges our cars face on the roads.
Getting your van in for a service is a great way to ensure that out of sight problems are taken care of.
Finding a problem when it is a small issue is far easier to solve than if you don't address it with interim or full services. Regular services can help you avoid full part replacements.
Buyers love to see a full-service history. If you can provide this you will be far more likely to receive an excellent sale price for your car. All thanks to how well you have taken care of it.
Maybe you never plan to sell your van. Well if that is you and you intend to have this van for many years to come. That is all fine and well but if you do not take good care of it it will be scrapped well before its time. Just like people your Transporter needs a little care to ensure it remains in good working condition. Especially if you are lugging heavy loads on a regular basis.
What our Technicians will be doing during the service will depend on the type of service you choose. There are two types to choose from with full and interim options as outlined above.
The Interim Service is the smaller of the two options and is for those looking for a check-up.
If you come in for an Interim Service we will be sure to check:
Then there is the big one that checks absolutely everything you could need. Here is a full list of what we will do to your transporter.
And we'll also:
A service is more of an annual health check of your vehicle while a MOT also measures car emissions by checking against criteria set by the government. Any car over three years old can't get car insurance without one.
We all know an MOT test is something we need to book annually. If you don't do it your car insurance becomes invalid and you won't know your vehicle is roadworthy.
So, if you are considering booking a service why not get an MOT sorted at the same time.
